Virtualization of QA Testing Speeds ERP Deployment at Mercy — Digital Healthcare and Productivity

May 29, 2007

Nice case study of Surgient virtual QA lab in use at Sisters of Mercy Health Systems. Using the Surgient virtual lab environment as part of an ERP rollout is saving tremendous time, they say–

Using the Surgient VQMS, the group can now run through 100 applications in a week with two people involved.

At the start of the ERP deployment, it was estimated that it would take six years of testing time to complete the QA testing. Now, Gutsche’s group thinks it will be closer to six months. “Previously, it took at least a week to run a level two test, now it takes about four hours,” said Gutsche. “This allows us to get to level three testing faster.”
